12. Left of Reckoning. March 1984: Eager to explore the music video medium, Stipe secured funding for a short film that would accompany music from the first half of Reckoning. Stipe’s concept was to film the project at folk artist R.A. Miller’s Whirlgig Farm, and he recruited Athens filmmaker James Herbert to direct it.

In March 1984 R.E.M. filmed Left of Reckoning at the Whirlgig Farm in Rabbittown, Georgia. The short film draws its title from the fact that it is soundtracked by five songs that appear on the “L” side of the vinyl version of Reckoning: “Harborcoat”, “7 Chinese Bros.”, “So. Central Rain (I’m Sorry)”, “Pretty Persuasion”, “Time After Time (AnnElise)”, in addition to “Second Guessing” from the R side.

In contrast to standard music video imagery, the film consists primarily of footage of the band members wandering around the farm, while Herbert utilizes close-ups, silhouettes, and slow-motion footage. While MTV did not air the complete film, the channel’s program The Cutting Edge (funded by I.R.S.) aired the “Time After Time (AnnElise)” segment, and the snippet featuring “Pretty Persuasion” was aired by other music programs.

R.E.M. Music Video Anthology Supplementary Reel 2007-2017 Volume  IV

89. Take Away Show #89: September 2007: Doing a ‘Take Away Show’ could be a way for REM to rejuvenate its image. Certainly, there is that, to leave the big arenas, ultra-sophisticated recording studios to start playing in the street, it is in fashion you could say. These are also the doubts that assail when you press REC for the first time – what if that does not work? what if the group were only ridiculous, too worn out, too used to playing their songs so perfectly in front of cameras that we stared at? The vast majority of musicians filmed in the Take Away Show project are young groups who are just starting out, often lending themselves with pleasure and curiosity to playing the acoustic set – a welcome promotion for the most part. So, from a group so old, so familiar with classical media …

Of the 7 songs played that evening, in the space of two hours, it will really be necessary to wait for the third song, ‘Living Well’ piled up in the car so that finally the doubts disappear – in a burst of laughter precisely, that de Stipe who finds sincere pleasure in playing to lend himself to the exercise. After that moment, everything seems to float, a little unreal elements like this ‘Born to be Wild’ chained after ‘Living Well’ but that no one will be able to see here – unfortunately, the big record companies. A night in Athens, which turns (almost) into a trip with friends.

‘On the Fly’ is not on the Accelerate album, a beautiful song heard live but which did not find a place in the end, and which could therefore exist for a long time in this only acoustic version, played in the one of the scattered little houses in the garden of Stipe. The songs that night are only played once, everything goes perfectly without any errors or even the need to repeat – and breaks this strange feeling that takes the witness of a concert with thousands of spectators and the confusing scenography (see the recent live DVD released by REM), which almost equates musicians with puppets pretending to play. Rediscovering this intimate relationship with REM probably stems from the fascination with these few images shot that night of September 21.

The hour is now very late, but Michael insists that one last song, ‘Sing for the Submarine’, be shot in the strange silo next to the swimming pool…

Small smirk, Mr Stipe, glass in hand, leans over and whispered, “I think we did something pretty unique together”.

90. Everybody Hurts: Helping Haiti cover featuring (in order of appearance) Leona Lewis, Rod Stewart, Mariah Carey, Cheryl Cole, Mika, Michael Bublé, Joe McElderry, Miley Cyrus, James Blunt, Gary Barlow (of Take That), Mark Owen (of Take That), Jon Bon Jovi, James Morrison, Alexandra Burke, Jason Orange (of Take That), Susan Boyle, JLS, Mark Feehily (of Westlife), Shane Filan (of Westlife), Kylie Minogue, Robbie Williams, Kian Egan (of Westlife), Nicky Byrne (of Westlife).
